Gold's been on quite a tear recently.
The "ultimate insurance" has grabbed the most headlines – and it's little wonder.
Since bottoming a year ago, gold is up by an impressive 20% and 11% year to date, hitting a six-year high near $1,420.
By comparison, silver is "only" up 12% over the last twelve months and just 6% this year.
But if you look at silver's action in the last month, a different picture emerges.
Since early July, gold has been essentially flat while silver has powered ahead by almost 10%.
Silver normally outpaces gold, leveraging it by two to one, but sometimes with a delay.
The junior metal is now surging upward, once again outpacing gold's gains and leading its more famous cousin higher.
